Jacket – Zara South Africa | Leggings – Bershka London | Shirt – MRP Menswear | Top – Mango | Bag – Zara | Boots – Country RoadLast week Tegan and I hopped onto a local flight to Johannesburg for two days. I wish I could have stayed longer but one of my best friends came into town to visit and I had to rush back to Cape Town to spend quality time with her. One thing I struggle to do on long haul flights is dress appropriately. When you’re flying economy class it’s difficult to look good and be comfortable at the same time, so I always end up styling something involving track pants and sneakers. With Johannesburg being less than two hours away from my incredible city of Cape Town, I could finally try something a little less practical to wear on my flight. I decided to test this look out, could I pull something like this off on a 7 hour flight? Although I love this flight look there are a few problems with it. Firstly my leggings were not warm enough for inflight air-conditioning. They also happen to be high waisted so I found my tummy fighting with my zip and eventually arched my back to attempt some form of comfort, had I worn them on a longer flight I would have had to undo my zip (gross). My shirt looked cool but ended up being a bit of a nuisance when I was sitting down. I eventually treated it as a very tiny blanket for my legs. This jacket, although incredibly coverted is a bit tight on my arms to wear on a plane. I would have had to stash a hoodie in my overhead luggage had the flight been longer. Lastly the boots were surprisingly comfortable and easy to slip on and off during flight. I would definitely wear ankle boots like these instead of sneakers next time because there is some room to squash a swollen foot into and its not nearly high enough to slow down walking, lifting luggage and pushing an airport trolley around.
